I know sometimes as we face certain obstacles and frustrations in life, our defenses tell us to “F it” or forget it. But that’s only in theory. Those offenses or emotions that we put out of our mind, on the backburner, or that we suppress…are only lying dormant. They’re not gone. They’re just waiting for the right time to resurface. And by right time I mean a time where we’re forced to bring those offenses up or to face them.
We could choose to ignore feelings of sorrow, heaviness and grief, but eventually it will all build up and catch us off guard. We’ll wonder, “Why am I so irritated, angry, sad, or withdrawn.” It may be due to grief or our inability to properly deal with it. And 2020 has brought its share of it…grief that is.
Life. Whew! It comes…and it goes. And whether we called ourselves being prepared because someone was sick; OR, if someone dies tragically, unexpectedly, or prematurely…grief is grief…and it is no respect of person. The thing is…we never know how we are going to feel when we lose someone. Whether it’s someone we know or someone we heard about.
